Some things in life are too important to be compromised: with Whirlpool's new FreshCare+ built-in washer dryer you can enjoy all the elegance of your modern home without compromising on style or performance. At the same time, there's no need to plan your day around the laundry, thanks to the innovative FreshCare+ system, which keeps your clothes soft and fresh for up to 6 hours after the end of a cycle. By using gentle steaming and tumbling actions, the new FreshCare+ washer dryer reduces the formation of creases and inhibits the proliferation of the main sources of bad odors, so you don't have to take clothes out of the machine immediately after the end of a washing or drying cycle. Caring for your clothes is made effortlessly intuitive thanks to Whirlpool's 6TH SENSE and SoftMove technologies, which automatically optimize the cycle and adapt drum movements to best suit each load and fabric type.
Take your time… there's no rush to unload your laundry!
Unlike conventional washer dryers, Whirlpool's new FreshCare+ appliances reduce the creases and inhibit the proliferation of the main sources of bad odors, which normally build up when clothes are left in the drum. The innovative FreshCare+ system, keeps your clothes soft and fresh for up to 6 hours after the end of either a washing or drying cycle. This means that you no longer have to rush to unload your laundry immediately - or worry about leaving a cycle running when you're out of the house.
After a washing cycle, the FreshCare+ cycle continues to gently massage the laundry for up to 6 hours with regular slow tumbling movements alternated with regular jets of steam, which inhibits the proliferation of sources of odor such as bacteria and reduces allergens. At the end of drying cycles, the machine performs a dedicated tumbling action for up to 6 hours to avoid creases fixing on garments.
As a result, you can relax and leave the laundry until it's convenient. For total flexibility, FreshCare+ can either be activated when setting a cycle or at any time throughout the washing or drying cycle and you can stop it whenever desired while the tumbling phase is running.
6TH SENSE technology - The intelligence behind outstanding washing results
6TH SENSE technology automatically detects the amount of laundry and, according to the fabric type, chooses the best setting to guarantee optimal performance and saving time, energy and water.
Once the user selects the desired programme, the washer dryer uses advanced sensors to monitor water level, motor torque and temperature. For each programme phase (washing and drying), several algorithms detect and define the best settings according to load type and laundry size. This ensures perfect washing and even drying, along with unbeatable efficiency in terms of time, energy and water saving.
SoftMove - Dedicated treatments for all fabric types
The new built-in washer dryer features Whirlpool's SoftMove system to deliver outstanding cleaning performance while caring for fabrics. During the washing and drying cycles, the exclusive SoftMove system can adapt to every type of fabric through specific motions created by 6 tailored drum movements.
Enabled by the SenseInverter motor, SoftMove selects the ideal combinations of these movement types and the duration of each washing phase - precisely adjusting everything from the initial water intake until the final spinning. The SoftMove system is also available on several drying programmes, preserving fabrics, colours and shapes of clothing.
Perfectly clean with only 15°C instead of 40°C
Thanks to the new washer dryer's Colours 15° cycle you can have exceptional cleaning while still preserving bright colours. Even at 15°C, it guarantees the same performance as a 40°C washing programme - all thanks to the SoftMove system. This moves clothes loosely within the drum to better absorb detergent, resulting in a more effective wash even at the lowest temperature, with colours that last longer.
Dry Only option
The Dry Only option allows you to dry wet laundry without having to run the wash cycle first. This option offers brilliant flexibility for those occasional times you wash by hand.
A motor for lasting high performance
At the heart of the FreshCare+ washer dryer is the SenseInverter brushless motor. This long-lasting and extremely quiet electrical motor offers brilliant reliability and energy efficiency to deliver energy savings during both washing and drying.
Discrete elegant design
The FreshCare+ built-in washer dryer is the latest addition to Whirlpool's FreshCare+ range, which includes washing machines, washer dryers and dryers. As a built-in model, the new washer dryer is a solution that can be discretely integrated into your home while guaranteeing the same mix of functionality, practicality and performance of a free-standing washer dryer. It has an easy to use interface that allows direct access to programmes on the control panel for more intuitive use and an ergonomically shaped porthole with integrated handle for easier loading and better visibility into the drum.
